Joseph Galante is a violinist and violist based in the New York City area specializing in historically informed performance practice. First prize winner of the Lameque International Baroque Music Festival-Mathieu Duguay Early Music Competition and the Early Music America Baroque Performance Competition, he has participated in festivals such as the Amherst Early Music and the Lamèque International Baroque Music Festival.
As a candidate for music education certification at the Aaron Copland School of Music, he is well-versed in upper/lower string and piano pedagogy. His focus centers around helping his students manage their practice skills in a lesson to create a foundation of good technique, habits, and routines at home. As a teacher, Mr. Galante’s objective is to foster his students’ love of learning and music by having them develop an awareness of how they learn and how they organize themselves in the hopes that these skills will translate across multiple subjects.
